The sequence of General Education courses is shown as an example only; they may be taken in any order.

General Education Policy allows a student to double count one Communications, Quantitative or Valuescourse as one Group A, B, or C. If using this option, take one additional Free Elective.

Students who take 40.156 rather than 53.123 cannot use 40.156 as a group C; they must take an extra

Group C in place of 53.123 and reduce the free Electives by 3.
